Hi, I'm really worried about my GPA. It is currently a 3.699, but I think might bring an A- or even a B+ in one class this quarter--how would that affect my GPA?
Also, does anyone think it would be possible for me to lift my GPA up to a 3.8 in one year and a half?
Thank you so much! Answers: on a 4.0 scramble, the only grade that does NOT lower your title is an A itself.
4.0 = A
3.6 = A-
3.3 = B+
3.0 = B
...and so on.It depends upon how your school calculates +/- grades and what the top of the amount is. Assuming that an A is 4.0 and a B is 3.0, then we will also assume A- = 3.667, B+ is 3.333 and there is no A+ (if in that were, would it get boosted to a 4.333? - you'll have need of to check with the registrar).
So, if you have a 3.699 currently, an A- would be a 3.667 which is smaller than your current GPA which would lower it. Same next to a B+.
Could you raise your GPA to a 3.8 within a year and a partly? It would depend on how many credits you already have. If you own nine hours, it won't take much to move it - but if you have ninety, it will bring a lot. Also, the number of classes you take over the eighteen months will influence the outcome.
One more point to consider: if you are trying to transfer to another school, your current GPA go away and you simply hold credit for the classes you've taken - you'll start with a null GPA at the new academy.
